More UFC stats BS
 
Couture grows to 6'0 and Moose to 6'2 when they get to the ufc.

Im so sick of their fake height crap for most fighters take off 2 inches and maybe you're getting there. 6'4 Mitrione is 6'2 according to his footy stats.

Not to mention carwin, Brock 6'2 nfl height, matching 6'5 Overeem. I met Randy and Karo theyre lucky to be 5'10 and 5'8 respectively.

I stopped caring about this 5 years ago.

I was watching Bellator recently, and they admitted that fighters give them these stats and they're taken at their word. It was funny because the comments were made during a fight where both fighters claimed to be 5 foot 8 when there was clearly a 2-3 inch height discrepancy.

Yeah it's BS, another WWEism in the so called sports org UFC. It's funny how people would be outraged if this happened in the Olympics or NFL, but people seem to take it as normal in MMA.

What, incorrect heights? Nobody gives the slightest ****. Do you really think every NBA player is exactly the height he's listed at, for example?

Oh no! We got a false height crisis on our hands!

Nope. But then some people will take any chance they can get to slam UFC.

Frankly, unless we each take a measuring tape to every athlete on planet earth, there's few assurances this doesn't happen in many sports.

I don't really care if a fighter is listed as 5'8 or 6'1

It's pandemonium! :laugh:

It is interesting to me that the UFC doesn't insure accurate stats on their site. It may only be height, but it really makes a person wonder.
